Alongside serving as the CEO of LandNExpand, Golden is an author, sought after speaker, and executive coach who has a background in implementing customer-centric approaches in high-growth software businesses. In addition to IBM and Hyperion, Golden has also worked with OpenView portfolio companies AtTask and VersionOne. She has an undergraduate degree in international business from California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, and an Executive MBA from San Diego State University.
“I believe my skillset and experience are an ideal fit for OpenView’s unique approach to helping expansion-stage software companies get — and keep — more customers,” Golden said. “Having already worked with AtTask and VersionOne, I’ve witnessed firsthand the firm’s focus and commitment to that mission. I’m honored to be a part of such a fantastic group of Senior Advisors and can’t wait to get started helping OpenView’s portfolio optimize their customer success organizations.”
